Hi, my name is Nohra Chalouhi, MD. I am the chief of cerebrovascular surgery at the Lillian S. Wells Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Florida. I completed my training at the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. I also completed my neurosurgical residency and a prestigious dual fellowship in endovascular and open vascular neurosurgery. Additionally I took the time to complete advanced training for the treatment of complex spinal disorders. I am board-certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery (ABNS).
For my patients I provide specialized care for complex vascular disorders of the brain and spine including aneurysms, ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes, arteriovenous malformations, carotid disease and cavernous malformations. In addition, I received extensive training in the treatment of spinal disorders at the Regional Spinal Cord Center of the Delaware Valley, one of the nation’s 16 model spinal cord injury centers. My approach to care centers on applying advanced surgical techniques to treat degenerative, infectious, vascular, neoplastic and inflammatory conditions of the spine.
In addition to patient care, I am engaged in several areas of research to improve the care of all neurosurgical patients. I have published extensively with over 250 peer-reviewed manuscripts and book chapters. My research focuses on the mechanisms and treatments of intracranial aneurysms and all types of strokes. In 2016, I received the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) Research Award for my work on the biology of cerebral aneurysm formation and rupture.
